Love Cory Ryan! posted 4/28/2014 (modified 4/29/2014)

I can’t say enough about Cory Ryan – she is FABULOUS to work with and has the most amazing pictures. When selecting a photographer I knew I wanted someone who was a little more creative than the standard wedding pictures while still capturing the classic wedding moments. We found that in Cory’s work and couldn’t be happier with all of our photos. She is fun to work with, makes you feel comfortable immediately, is creative and very personable.

One of the other things we loved about Cory is her albums and other products. They are so creative, lively and very well made with attention to the finest details. We now have works of art out of our pictures that we can put on our coffee table etc. Her quality is the absolute finest and it shows in her end product.

Overall Cory was extremely easy to work with from day one. She was very clear with her contract and flexible with customizing the package to what best fit what we wanted and our budget. She was quick to respond to anything that we needed and very thorough in her own information gathering to make sure she captured our wedding as we wanted. All of her staff and supporting photographers were incredibly professional and talented. I cannot recommend Cory Ryan enough! I can honestly say all the pictures from engagement photos to the wedding were a blast!

Now the challenge is to figure out which photos will make our wedding album…there are too many good ones!

We loved having Cory as our wedding photographer! She was lovely to work with from the very beginning and was prompt in communicating details and important information to us. She understood our vision and was able to capture our special day perfectly! She has a wonderful personality/energy, thus it was a lot fun to work with her (which is key, as you will be around your photographer for the majority of the day!). She also kept us on schedule in regards to wedding party/family photos. I highly recommend Cory's services, as she creative, organized, personable, professional, and highly skilled! A winning combination!

Awesome Destination Wedding Pics posted 1/19/2014 (modified 1/20/2014)

We could not be happier with the images Cory Ryan captured of our destination wedding in Park City, Utah! Despite having never photographed a wedding in the snow, Cory's pictures turned out beautifully and we have received rave reviews from everyone who has seen them. She was great at keeping us on our schedule and managed to fit in all the photos we wanted on a very tight timeline! If you are considering having a destination wedding, I would highly recommend using Cory -- she went out of her way to scout out the perfect locations for all of our photo sessions, and we probably actually got more creative photos using someone new to the area than if we had chosen a photographer who shoots in Park City every weekend!

AMAZING photographer! posted 1/1/2014 (modified 1/2/2014)

Cory was amazing and finding the photographer was one of the only things I left up to my husband. I told him this is the one things we couldn't skimp out on. :) She was so easy to work with and made me feel extremely comfortable. For my bridal portraits, I had listed some great locations for the photos, but she told me she wanted me to come up with some great locations that were more unique to me. I am so glad she did.... I could not be happier with the portraits and the locations that we came up with. We also love the wedding photos. She was so professional and fun to work with. Half the time we didn't even see her! We were also pleasantly surprised when we got all of the photos back in about a month and how beautiful they turned out! She got some amazing pictures! She was quick, professional, and a delight to work with! Everyone loves the pictures! I would definitely recommend her!

Groom posted 11/26/2013 (modified 11/27/2013)

Cory Ryan did an amazing job from day 1 including the bridal shoot and all aspects of our wedding. She kept regular contact with us well in advance of the wedding and was very organized leaving one less detail for us to worry about on our wedding day. Cory is very professional, punctual, creative, and truly seemed to care about what was most important to us. I was most impressed with the end product and after receiving all of our wedding photos. I felt like I was able to relive the wedding at a much slower pace. As everyone told us, try to take a step back and take it all in. Well, that seemed very difficult during the wedding as we were having too much fun. In the end, Cory captured the most important parts of the wedding and I felt the photos were a great representation of our wedding day and all it entailed. We enjoyed having Cory shoot our wedding and would highly recommend her to anyone!!!

Cory is wonderful! posted 9/9/2013

Cory did an amazing job photographing our wedding! I was super stressed when researching and interviewing photographers and Cory was such a professional and just made everything really chill and easy. I clicked with her focus on artistry but totally professional demeanor. Her assistant was also great. All told we ended up with hundreds of pictures that are totally beautiful and she got them to us in like a month or less. It was great to get the photos back so fast!

I know that the photographer search is super crazy but I cannot recommend Cory enough!

Cory captures each wedding or event with unique style and special intrigue. That's why I chose her for our wedding and my bridal portraits. She made me feel so comfortable the day of my portraits and the day of the wedding. Plus she made our large outdoor wedding look like something out of a magazine. We will have incredible photos to last a life time!

Worth every penny! posted 3/10/2013

I cannot say enough great things about Cory Ryan! When planning our wedding the one recommendation I received from all my married friends was to not skimp on photography and I'm so glad I listened. My husband scoured through tons of Austin photographers' websites and was not impressed until he came across Cory Ryan Photography. She will commemorate your wedding day with the most beautiful photos possible and was such a pleasure to work with. If you are lucky enough for her to be available on your wedding date, do not hesitate to book her immediately!!

Outstanding! posted 6/8/2012

Cannot say enough great things about Cory! Our pictures are truly fantastic - we have hundreds and hundreds of beautiful reminders of our "big day" and the rehearsal dinner the night before - and she captured so many things that we missed! Really beautiful shots of our family and friends and all the little things that made our day special. A number of people have commented on how our photographer seemed to be "everywhere" all at once.

We went into the wedding wanting a truly exceptional photographer because the photos are one piece that can be treasured for a lifetime (or longer), and we got that with Cory! She was personable, flexible, had great ideas and really has given us a wonderful gift with her outstanding talent. I recommend Cory wholeheartedly!!

She's a pro! posted 5/12/2012

Cory did an amazing job photographing our wedding at Laguna Gloria in Austin, TX. #1: She is super professional. For example, we only booked her for 2 hours (b/c we eloped and married in a private ceremony). And, she was on time, efficient, and didn't dilly-dally with anything. She used the most of our 2 hours to capture as many shots as possible, and was on top of everything. She was also quick with email responses. ...Great overall "customer service" (if that's the right word for it). She's a real pro! #2: She is also innovative and helpful (not pushy) in offering advice and tips. For example, we planned to marry outside, but the pouring down rain caused us to move indoors and she knew exactly where we should stand to capture great light. Moreover, she was prepared with rain guards and an assistant if we did still want to marry outdoors. We came with giant clear umbrellas, so it was really our call and she was down for whatever we wanted instead of pushing us in one direction! AND- I'm glad we took her suggestions!!! #3: She has a great attitude, which makes all the difference. Photos are going to capture your mood!!! If you have an irritating photographer or someone who looks like they don't want to be there, or someone who isn't smiling, or looks stressed, or isnt personable, its going to come through in photos. She made it comfortable and easy. For example, she was all smiles when we pulled up and it really made me excited. She was positive and reassuring that our last minute change-of-location was going to look amazing- and she was right. I actually think the photos were better indoors. The pictures looked magical, which is exactly what I wanted. #4: Her photos are not boring wedding photos. I also love the coloring of her photos. They are bright and vivid. We love them! #5: I felt that she was easy to talk to and understanding. For example, when I explained what I wanted the photos to feel like, she was open-minded and and had a "yes we can do that" attitude. #6: She was grateful and appreciative for my business!! I will definitively book her again, probably when i get pregnant! :)

Wonderful photographer! posted 11/22/2011


My wedding was made absolutely complete by having the most talented and personable photographer! Cory Ryan captured every moment and through her photographs I am now able to relive my wonderful memories by her amazing photographs. I am so pleased with every single photo she took, her color and lighting are amazing.

When hiring a photographer a lot of times people don't take into account that on your special day you will be spending a lot of time with that person so its imperative that your photographer is someone who can make you feel comfortable. Cory is such a sweet easy going gal, yet an extremely professional wedding photographer, with those two attributes you have yourself the most awesome wedding photographer!

I could not be more pleased with my choice as choosing Cory Ryan as my photographer!

I cannot fully express in words how pleased I am having chosen Cory Ryan to be my wedding photographer. Her customer service and professionalism is unbelievable, and her creativity and ability to capture the most INCREDIBLE images and spontaneous moments is impeccable! She is so detail oriented and spends so much time and effort before the event ensuring that she has all the information she could possibly need in order to meet, and exceed in her case, all your expectations. Her "artistic eye" is just incredible. This might sound strange, but it's a testament to how amazing she is... I look back on my wedding with fonder memories after having seen her photos of the day. She captured everything perfectly. Her photos made me think it was a better event than I felt it was before seeing them! She's awesome and so patient and professional. Cannot sing her praises enough.

Incredible!!! posted 5/21/2011

I just received our wedding photos back from Cory and while sharing them the #1 phrase repeated by all my friends and family was, "Oh my Gosh, Cory did an amazing job!!"

Her attention to detail really allowed the photos to tell the complete story of our wedding day from beginning to end. Throughout the entirety of the evening, I hardly noticed Cory but the photos appeared as if she were everywhere in the shadows.

Her candid shots are indescribable. She took shots of my grandmother (and many others) that put me in tears. Every single image is full of raw emotion and love.

The best wedding planning decision I made was picking Cory Ryan as our photographer. She truly is a blessing to work with and I can't wait to share our cherished memories with our children to be.
